“We test these products until they break. Then we find the problem, fix it, and test them again, always under the most severe operating conditions conditions far tougher than anything the product is likely to see in the real world. It’s a 24 hour a day operation and it’s an integral part of our product development process.”Mike Kornprobst, Senior Engineering Manager,
Cut with ConfidenceWhether you’re repairing a pipeline in Norway in winter; fabricating harvesting equipment in the middle of summer in Brazil; gouging out welds on heavy equipment in the iron mines of Australia; manufacturing parts on a table in the USA; or putting up a skyscraper in China, you can be confident that your Hypertherm Powermax system will perform reliably under the toughest of conditions.
Reliable by Design™Reliability is designed into every Powermax system through features like our patented Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, which utilizes software instead of hardware to perform key internal functions, eliminating parts and improving reliability; and Powercool™ technology, which cools key components efficiently and effectively for superior system reliability.
Powermax systems are tested under strict protocols which ensures the highest levels of performance and reliability. Hypertherm conducts: Extensive live-arc testing Severe environmental testing, including Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) Aggressive mechanical testing Complete diagnostic testing and burn-in of each system
